Summer!!! It's here, and it's bringing with it lots of fire energy! Summer is a time where we are more active, having fun, spending time outside, moving our bodies, laughing... There is nothing better than the beginning of Summer! Beginnings! Really take advantage of all the energy in the air right now, use that energy of fire to move your body. Fire energy is powerful but it is also fluid and flexible. Find the flow in your life. With the New Moon in the sign of Gemini it's a great time to create more balance in your life. Part of this balance might be how to have more flow and fun! I feel fun is key right now. How can you balance all the stress, busyness and work with some fun? That might mean taking a break in the middle of the day to be in the sun, call a friend and have a good laugh about something, dance to a fun song... Just keep finding things that allow you to have fun. Our energy expands itself when we are having fun, healing can come from having fun, connections can be made while having fun. No doubt that we are just more open while having fun and being joyful! You can sprinkle a little fun into any activity - it's all about how you are seeing yourself in the moment. I think it's really important to have a sense of humor about yourself, and about life. Where can you lighten up about something that feels a bit heavy? How can you laugh about it, or laugh it off? I have this wonderful Yoko Ono book and in it are all these brilliant ideas and assignments. One of them is: Dance Piece III - Take your pants off before you fight. This is exactly what I am talking about.
It's important to create balance right now wherever you feel off. This may mean some more rest, or more movement, getting up earlier, drinking more water, letting out a loud yelp, being more social, or taking a nap. In every moment just ask yourself what you need to feel balanced. Your body holds SO much wisdom, it is telling you what it needs, you just have to listen.
Summer is a time of abundance! How can you allow for more abundance in your life? We don't need to live in a feeling of "not enough". Not enough time, not enough ideas, not enough love, not enough connection. Each moment is full of potential for ANY THING - and every thing. We just have to allow ourselves to be open to it.
Summer Solstice is on Sunday - the day of the year where the Sun will reach it's highest point in the sky, and the day will be our longest. Spend some time asking yourself what this moment means to you, what is this time about for you? It's a great day for reflection and being outside. Enjoy the light of the day. Midsummer has an interesting history. In many traditions it is a day of planning, celebration, a time of fertility and marriage, and honoring the Sun.

HAPPY New Moon and Summer Solstice to you!
